Youths learn HIV/AIDS prevention techniques
27 September, 2004 - Belmopan
Fifteen (15) youths from neighborhoods in specially difficult
circumstances in the Belize, Cayo and Stann Creek Districts will be
attending a three day training workshop beginning tomorrow and ending
September 30th. Venue will be the Youth for the Future Training Center
in Belize City.
The objective of this activity is to educate leaders in these
communities on the issues of HIV/AIDS prevention. It is hoped that this
will heighten the awareness among these youths and eventually change
their behavior in their respective neighborhoods.
This programme, the first in a series, is a joint effort being made by
the Belize Family Life Association, National AIDS Programme, the Belize
Red Cross and Youth for the Future.
It is being sponsored by OPEC Funds, UNFPA and the Government of
